Community Ministries

The primary mission of Fairview Baptist Church is to help people know and accept Jesus as Savior and Lord. We then strive to help them develop a close personal relationship with Jesus and become His disciples.

We also reach out to the community in various efforts to demonstrate God’s love for all. We provide these services to both members and non-members alike.

Ultimately, our ministries seek to facilitate a decision to accept Jesus as Savior, and to live a life of service to God. We invite you to become familiar with these opportunities at Fairview.

Genesis Ministry

Fairview’s Genesis Ministry is solely funded by monetary donations. The ministry provides one-time Electric payments to families in need.

If you would like to donate to the Genesis Ministry, please call Judi Parker at (540) 659-3338.

For those in need, Please fax a copy of your disconnect notice to 540-720-8302.
At this time due to the enormous need and restricted funds we can only help in the counties of Spotsylvania, Stafford and the City of Fredericksburg.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Micah Ministry

Micah Ecumenical Ministries, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit, governed by ten downtown churches in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The organization is a relationship-based ministry built on the foundation of the Bible’s Micah 6:8. Since formation in 2005, we’ve worked to be the face of Christ in our community, serving neighbors in need by filling vital service gaps. Our work has so far focused on the needs of the chronic homeless–those whose mental challenges, disabilities, background barriers and substance abuse issues keep them from succeeding in existing systems. But agency founders envision a future of programs that will fill gaps for many other vulnerable populations.

As a part of the MICAH Ministry, Fairview Baptist provides a breakfast on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month. Between March and November we generally serve between 12 and 15 patrons. When the cold weather shelter is open we serve as many as 40 people. As of now, we are fully staffed. The people who attend seem very appreciative and I am blessed to be part of this ministry.

“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” -Micah 6:8.

Food Pantry

The Linda Lambert Food Pantry serves between 60 and 70 individuals and families from the Fredericksburg area each month. It is open every second and fourth Saturday from 9:30am to 11:00am and every second Sunday from 10:40 until 11:00 for members only. A variety of items from different food groups are offered with emphasis on wholesomeness and nutrition.

We do require all clients to bring proof of residence to receive assistance. This would be in the form of a utility bill (electric, gas, cable, etc) or a copy of the current lease. A photo ID is not sufficient as it does not prove residence. Assistance is giving on a per-household basis.
